On Tuesday January 15, 2019 Judy left us without saying goodbye to all those that knew her and loved her. Judy was born in Halifax, NS and moved to Louisbourg at the age of 2. Judy was a graduate of the Cape Breton Business College.
In 1973, Judy married the love of her life Mel and moved west to Manitoba eventually arriving in BC in 1979. Judy and Mel enjoyed the next 12 years working in the high artic. It was a unique and memorable time for the couple. Mel enjoyed a challenging career working in remote locations while Judy continued her career with CIBC and then TRU. Judy was a hardworking, dedicated employee and friend no matter the job or the challenge. Even though Judy was miles away from Mel and her family, she stayed in constant contact with her family and friends, visiting and calling whenever she could.
Judy never had children, her niece’s Michelle and Amy, nephew’s Matthew and Adam, their children and godson John were also the loves of her life, showing of pictures and bragging all the time.

In our hearts your memory lingers
Always tender, fond and true
There’s not a day dear Judy
We won’t think of you.
